Football (Mens)

We are a football club for the LGBTQ community and our friends. We run regular training sessions, and we enter all sorts of different tournaments and events, locally, nationally, and internationally. 

We are also in the GFSN nationwide 11 a side league for the 2021/2022 season, with 12 competitive games including away trips to Cardiff, Liverpool and Glasgow. We are looking to recruit new players to complement our existing squad, so please get in touch.


Mixed informal football - Saturdays - Starting 25th September 2021

We are pleased to announce that we will be re-starting the mixed non-competitive Saturday football sessions on 25th September.

They were a big success a few years ago, with some skills training followed by an enjoyable non-competitive small sided game.  

They will be ideal for those new to football who want to give it a try or hone their skills outside of the existing sessions which tend to more focused on training for games and competitions.  Of course anyone is more than welcome to attend both sessions if they wish!  The sessions will be supported by a small group of our more experienced footballers.

The sessions will run from 11am - 12pm, initially for 4 weeks as a trial with a view to making them a regular occurrence should they prove popular.

The sessions will be held at the Manor in Kemptown (Manor Rd, Brighton BN2 5EA) and will cost £5 for the hour (payable by card on the day).  No need to pre-book, just turn up and play! 

The pitch is 3G pitch so we would recommend astro-turf trainers and shin pads just in case. 

There are full changing facilities at the venue and on-street parking available right outside.

Please email football@blagss.org if you have any questions and hope to see you there!
